AWESOME BREW! defiantly best when poured into a chilled pint glass.

Pours a dark golden amber with a thin white quickly dispersing head.

Smells strongly of clove and spice with a background of banana and breadfruit.

Taste just like it smells, lots of sweet clove and spiciness right outta the gate and as it goes down is when you get the very distinct banana blast to the back of your tongue, and it finishes off with a very clean citrus hop note, very dynamic beer.

Mouthfeel: not bad, the hop leaves behind a little something for you, but not anything that cant be fixed by cracking another!

Overall, one of my favorite ( its finally fall) beers. spicy and sweet. awesome.

Gently poured into weizen glass. Very golden/yellow, with lots of rising carbonation. Lingering foam head. Looks delectible, smells the same. Clove & banana scent. Very crisp and smooth, with a spicy wheat taste. Bit of a watery finish. This is definitely a hefe but it doesnt pack the punch that other hefes do

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, bottle date of 1132 (I'm too lazy to figure it out). This pours a hazy straw color with a large big bubbled white head. The smells are if wheat and spices, coriander. The feel is medium to light with med to high carbonation. The taste are pretty good, some wheat and the spices.

12oz Bottle

Appearance - Hazy amber/gold colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Lemons, bananas, grains, bread, yeast

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste bananas, lemons, and a lot of spice.. coriander and cloves. There are also notes of yeast and grains and it finishes with a spicy lemon/banana aftertaste.

Overall - Sierra Nevada has yet to disappoint.. everything they do is fantastic. This is the type of beer that I could drink all day/night.. very sessionable.
